I clicked the URL and it took me to this suspicious-looking sign-in page. I do a lot of webpage creation and it just didn't look professional enough...something seemed wrong. <br><br><br><br>Viewing Source confirmed my suspicions:<br><br>[color:red]meta content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0" name="GENERATOR"<br>meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document"</font color=red><br><br>We all know eBay would NEVER use FrontPage to build ANYTHING...no professional would. I just reported it along with the IP. Hopefully they'll catch them, but I doubt it. <br><br>Just FYI<br><br>
Actually Frontpage is moving towards being a CAML/ASP editor for Sharepoint (.Net) sites, and offers pretty decent XSL features.<br><br>The layout tools still suck though. Microsoft just luuuuvvvves them Tables!<br><br>-------<br>Predictable. Consistent. Either way, it's the same thing.
